Captain Pete Mondello Rebuilds His Trap Trawl Table Once Again

A GMG tradition through the years.

Tracking Captain Pete’s Trawl Table Rebuilds every 3-4 years.

Here’s this year’s table (built 6/16/18)-

And previous rebuilds-

PETER MONDELLO MAKING A NEW SETTING TABLE

Here’s Pete Mondello and Billy working on a new setting table for the Allison Carol.

When Pete hauls his ten pot trawls he will stack the pots along that setting table after they have been re-baited and then he will set the traps off the back of this “setting table”

SO PETE MONDELLO IS REBUILDING HIS TRAWL TABLE AND…

So Pete is rebuilding his trawl table on the back of the F/V Allison Carol and I coulda sworn he had just rebuilt it last year.  I’m thinking to myself jeeze, that didn’t last long.

So I say “Pete, didn’t you just rebuild that last year?  Two years ago tops?”

His reply, “Nah, that was three years ago.”

Well guess what?  Not only wasn’t it longer than one two or three years ago, it was 6 frickin years ago!

6 Years ago-

Where the heck is the time going?????

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! BROUGHT TO YOU BY PAPA PLOVER

Papa and Pip snuggling today

Whenever folks stop by to ask questions at the nesting area and they see the little chicks snuggling under the adult PiPl, they almost automatically assume it is the Mama Plover. Half the time it is the female, and the other half, the male. Mom and Dad share equally in caring for the chicks, generally in twenty minute to half hour intervals. They are always within ear shot and while one is minding the chicks, the other is either feeding itself, grooming, or patrolling for predators. Last year, as is often the case, the Mama Plover departed Good Harbor Beach several weeks before the chick fledged, leaving Little Chick entirely under Papa’s care.

If you would like to help monitor Pip and our PiPl family, please contact Ken Whittaker at kwhittaler-ma.gov.

Father’s Day Morning bike ride Plus PSA

I call this “Skip’s Tree” since he takes the best photos predawn right here. End of ride so I’m an hour late. (And I run into Skip under the Keystone Bridge ten minutes later with his camera out.)

PSA (Public Service Announcement) Road Race today. Just don’t get in your car. It’s not worth it.

Quarries are lovely in the morning.

Father’s Day gift. I am designating myself President and Treasurer of the Cape Ann Electrical Bicycle Association. Email me your application for membership to CAEBA.
